ANTIQUE SALISBURY MODEL FULL SIZE BILLIARD TABLE NO 4868
Price $26,500.00 inc GST
Alcocks first produced the Salisbury model Billiard Table in the earliest years of the twentieth century, doubtless to honour Robert Cecil, third Marquess of Salisbury. Salisbury served as Prime Minister of Great Britain on three occasions, holding office when the British Empire was at its zenith. At that time a majority of Australians took pride in being a part of that Empire.
The Salisbury model Table was manufactured using Australian timbers, principally Queensland Silky Oak. With the lighter toned finish and unique grain pattern of this timber the Salisbury model presented a contrast to the heavier darker finishes of high Victorian Furniture. In style the Salisbury model is notable for its distinctive richly fluted leg, and its hand carved arches and knee panels.
